    Yes I'm a Newbie...

    Hi Flo, Congrats!!! I hope you're doing your research here. Tons of brides past and future are here to help. I just got married at ROR August 8, 2009. It was the best day of my life and I couldn't have wanted more! Start off by getting a list together of things you want. Colors, themes, how many people, type of wedding, dress ideas , etc. Then you can look at prices and compare which hotel if used at all you want to go with. I chose ROR for many reasons, the price was great, it provided tons of amenities for my guests, the location was convenient, the hotel had wonderful reviews, I love Ocho Rios , Jamaica, the weather is beautiful, the beach is huge! The food is amazing yum!!! If you need any help let me know, i'm here to help! Good luck and congrats! Natalie PS: http://natalieandallanswedding.shutterfly.com

    ROR question re: documentation

    Hi only the bride and groom have to provide documentation to Chhandlyn beforehand. I got copies of my birth certificate and passport notarized by a public notary. I actually emailed them to Chhandlyn and brought in the originals just in case. It was actually really easy. I chose the religious wedding. Hope this helps and congrats!! If you need anything else just ask. It's been 1 month since my wedding in ROR YAY!!!

    ROR - Jr Suite locations

    I was just married at ROR on August 8, 2009 and we had a Jr. Suite that had a partial ocean view and a view of a dirt path road and some vendors outside. We actually didn't mind this, it was really private and there was no loud noises coming from anywhere. We were in building 1 on the 3rd floor. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

I did not bring anything with me so they took apart one of my bridesmaids bouquet and topped the cake with it. Check this out , hope it helps http://natalieandallanswedding.shutterfly.com

Hey Bradleysgirl They show you a few options when you meet with them. I believe about 5 options. I chose the bouquet based on the colors and it was a cascading bouquet. My colors were actually goldish yellow but this bouquet by far was more beautiful. There were other flowers, rose bouquet and assorted carnations as well. If you want more options than the ones offered with the package, you can email Tai Flora and they can give you some upgrade options. Good luck and congrats! Everything will be perfect! Nikki and Chandlyn are wonderful!

Hey Anna, no I did not have to pay extra for the flowers on the cake. Those were actually one of my bridesmaids bouquet that they took apart during the reception and placed it on there. We did have to pay for the bridemaids bouquet , they were $35 each for the tropical design.Take care!

If you opt for the private reception you will have to pay extra. Chandlyn and Nikki ended up putting us there along with 2 other bridal parties for their reception and closed off the restaurant for us. It was semi-private. We originally were suppose to have our reception at Mammee Bay and the day we met with her she changed it on us. I would not have paid extra for the Plantation restaurant, save your money and if you don't mind a semi - private than just skip the extra costs.

Go to the Photo Shop immediately right after. Do not upgrade your cake it's not worth the $. Do choose the extra white runner, it added such an elegant touch to the wedding. Also if the planners change things on you, expect it. They change the restaurant on me from Mammee Bay to Plantation. Make sure you remind them to give you breakfast in bed cause they forgot ours. Remind the people are you entitled to the free room upgrades with your package. Good luck and have fun, remember it's your day and who cares if things don't go perfect , trust me noone will notice! They will just notice you , Take care

    Why ROR?

    We chose ROR for so many reasons: - The location was beautiful - The wedding packages were complete and afforadable - The food and drinks are unlimited 24 hours a day - The people are the Riu Resorts are very accommodating - They gave me an option for the # of guests for each package - Our wedding planner let me choose either the beach location or the lagoon gazebo area - The costs to and from Jamaica is afforadable and convenient to get to - The resort is huge, it's amazing! Hope this helps a bit, I just got married there August 8, 2009
